ABU DHABI: The Cabinet has adopted the formation of the ‘UAE Council for Artificial Intelligence’ (AI) to ensure the implementation of these technologies in various sectors.

The move aims to serve the UAE Government’s objectives, and improve the quality of life of citizens and residents in order to achieve the vision of the UAE 2021 and make the UAE one of the best countries in the world by 2071.

The council’s formation is a reaffirmation of the UAE Government’s keenness to move forward in the use of artificial intelligence and its applications in various fields to improve government performance and create innovative work environments to accelerate the development projects.
